Local Investing YYC looks for the following criteria in our investments:

  • Have a strong business plan

  • Have revenue visibility or other evidence of the viability of the business model

  • Have skin in the game and/or other financing

  • Are fully committed to the business and the cause – the venture is not a side gig

  • Can secure our investment and/or provide preferential creditor treatment

  • Meet our financial health criteria

Check back in later in the year for future funding opportunities.
